The Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt {Dublin, Ireland}

Let me start by saying that this post is just a tiny taste of my trip to Ireland (and there will be much more coming) but I just had to share some images of the amazing Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt.  The picture above and below are the view of the back of the hotel that overlooks the mountains.  My suite faced the mountains and had a terrace that ran the length of the suite.  Stunning!

The Gordon Ramsey restaurant also looks out over the mountains and the fountains.  The lobby (below) is lovely and has beautiful chandeliers that look like hot air balloons to commemorate the fact that the estate was used to film the hot air balloon arrival scene in the movie "The Count of Monte Cristo."

This hotel seems made for weddings and has so many stunning places for photos.  The shot below by Kurt Vinion is a classic Ritz Powerscourt image!

More fun details and fun images to come!
